Well Grounded’s vision is of a society where people are thriving socially and economically in a diverse, dynamic and nurturing coffee industry.
Well Grounded runs a series of Specialty Coffee Training Academies for adults facing barriers to employment. We empower people with the skills, training, mentorship and qualifications they need to access work in the specialty coffee industry. Our aftercare programme transitions over 70% of our Graduates into work, further training and education and provides ongoing free wellbeing and coffee training.
Well Grounded has an ambitious strategy to ensure systemic change in the hiring, recruitment and progression practices of the specialty hospitality industry, linking those facing barriers to work into careers in coffee. Our newly launched Coffee Career Accelerator programme supports people to progress in the industry, empowering the coffee leaders of the future.
